Have your goals gone mad?
Take back control.
If you’ve got a great boss, appreciate them. If not, look for ways to make them better for your own benefit. A struggling manager can knock your confidence and limit your potential. Try these three tips, and this vital work relationship should improve.
Get out from under the microscope
Managers micromanage because they fear you will drop the ball and make them look bad. Face the problem head-on:
Then, from a position of trust, gently convince them that there is more than one way to get results.
Clear the air
Don’t let disappointments or disagreements fester.
Lighten your manager’s mental load, and you’ll make them less temperamental.
If your boss remains toxic to you, even after you’ve tried to make them better, don’t stay too long. It’s time to move on when you start second-guessing yourself or stop speaking up.
